HOT FROM FOX�

"AMERICA'S MOST WANTED" HELPS COPS BUST SUSPECTED ONLINE PREDATORS WITH THE HELP OF A "SPECIAL INVESTIGATOR" � MISS AMERICA SATURDAY, APRIL 28, ON FOX

You've seen Miss America walking the runway, in her sophisticated evening gown or bathing suit. But you've never seen her like this: Hunkered down with AMERICA'S MOST WANTED host John Walsh and a team of specially-trained cops, taking down accused predators who thought they were about to meet with a teenage girl, on a special edition of AMERICA'S MOST WANTED airing Saturday, April 28 (9:00-10:00 ET/PT) on FOX.

Lauren Nelson of Oklahoma, Miss America 2007, has dedicated her reign to promoting Internet safety for kids. In Saturday's AMW special edition, Nelson and Walsh take the fight to protect kids to the front lines. Working with the Suffolk County, NY, Computer Crimes Unit, they take part in a sting operation aimed at would-be predators. Using photos of Nelson as a teenager for bait, investigators went online and quickly found themselves in contact with men who began sexually oriented chats � and then tried to set up meetings with the "young girl" they were talking to. When they showed up at the meeting place � a house specially rigged with cameras � they got the shock of their lives. Not only were the police waiting for them, but so were Walsh � and Miss America. The alleged predators who showed up included a 52-year-old luxury car salesman and father of three. In a heated confrontation, he found himself on the receiving end of some "choice words" from AMW's crime-fighting host.

In addition to following the action as Walsh and Nelson take part in the sting operation, the broadcast will include tips for parents on how to protect their kids online.

AMERICA'S MOST WANTED: AMERICA FIGHTS BACK is produced by STF Productions, Inc. Lance Heflin is executive producer.
